Skip to comments.Obama's Approval Rating (Rasmussen) is -20, lowest since April
Posted on 06/18/2011 6:53:11 AM PDT by southernnorthcarolina
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 21% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20.
The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern.
Overall, 45% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. Fifty-five (55%) at least somewhat disapprove.
45% somewhat? Needs to drop to 33% !
I think he actually reached -10 right after Osama bin laden. Now it’s back to his usual territory.
Hey, Gallup has it down to 39!
They guy is an empty shell. He has no inner reservoir of political experience - NOR INTELLIGENCE (ala Clinton) - to turn himself around. He is a political buffoon that snookered less than 5% of the electorate to sneak into the WH.
HOW LOOOOOW CAN YOU GO?
That his approval is still this high is a testament to the degree to which our citizens are brain dead, and is frightening. I hear all these dim Dems like Debbie W-S spouting and spinning, and I wonder where in the h#!! they sprouted from.
He reached -7 a number of times in May. On June 9th he was -9. Then the floor fell out. Next day he was -15 and falling.
I don’t recall any major event happening around then, but I think the public looked at the economic numbers and is starting to realize the guy doesn’t know what he is doing and that his campaign promises were just “hope.”
Also, they are finally seeing he doesn’t have his heart in the job. His hints that one term might be OK with him and his family. Eighteen holes a day is starting to look pretty good to him.
He’s a lame duck.
Someday,someone, most likely after he has left office, will write the definitive study about him-and we will realize how he snookered a vast number of Americans. People on this site were discussing his left wing background months before the election. Oh, and the author or authors of this study will be one or more investigative reporters working for a non-USA newspaper or other type of media.
But with a campaign spending promise of One Billion Dollars Obama can give $100 each to 10 million people to vote
Or $100 each time someone votes...
Obama last touched -20 in his Approval Rating on April 11, but it was a quick downspike and rebound. The current decline seems to be settling into a new "trading range" -- the last six Approval Ratings (each of which are based on 3-day rolling averages) are -18, -18, -17, -19, -19, -20. This is Obama's worst multi-day stretch since March, and it threatens to become his worst since September, '10.
Down to -20? Sounds like it’s time for another vacation.
Gallup has what down to 39%? According to what I see Gallup has Hussein's approval at 45% - same as Rasmussen.
Oh no you don’t. You’re not going to get my hopes up only to see him poll twenty points higher tomorrow. Nope. Not gonna trust it this time.
Probably because of His
Thumbing his Nose at the War Powers Act.
Some of the The Libs are Livid about it
Libs at the Netroot Convention are really mad at Obama.
Zero’s only shot is in the hands of Hispanic legal and illegal voters. Look for him to direct a significant portion of his war chest to generate “street action” similar to ACORN but geared toward the Hispanic community. La Raza is sitting in the catbird’s seat.
Obama is headed for a mental breakdown. He no more should be POTUS then I should eat swiss cheese on the Moon!!! That insane, stupid, useless five hour trip he took to Puerto Rico last week proves he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer!!! What an insult to all Puerto Ricans!!! Didn’t see much press and video coverage, did ya? Know why? No one in PR gave a damn that the America hater was there. Wow!!! About one thousand people showed up at the airport to greet him!!! That’s 1000 out of four million people on the island. Not a good showing, you think?
39% would vote or Obama vs. 44% for a generic Republican.
Hey, I don’t care about the 6% who say they approve of, but wouldn’t vote for. him!
Keep up the good work, boy.
Good post, and thanks for the link..You’re correct, it’s not each individual number that’s important it’s the trend line, and the TREND IS OUR FRIEND..
Maybe he will see these numbers and upchuck and die.
“This is a steep drop and is continuing. I wonder what caused it.”
More than likely it was the poor economic news and the uncertainty about the possibility of recovery.
How about the pub candidates beating up on him in the debates and stump speeches?
Especially when you spend your time finding ways to give them Other People's Money.
This Libya-War Powers thing is eroding the strong support from his base. Plus the current economic news.
A local talk radio station has a lib host on Saturday morning. Today he was interviewing some so-called “expert” who defended Obama’s Libyan policy. He said despite being advised by White House legal council that he was in violation of the War Powers Act, Obama the “constitutional legal scholar” (barf) made his own decision that it was legal. Then the “expert” swooned that Obama’s approval rating is still around 50% despite all the bad economic news because people just “like” him. The media will continue to prop him up. He’s not going anywhere. He will run for re-election.
